Kybella® in Minneapolis, MN
What is Kybella®?
Submental fat develops under the chin and along the jaw to create what is more commonly known as a “double chin.” Prior to the development of Kybella®, women had two choices for toning and tightening the area — liposuction or neck lift surgery. Kybella® is the first injectable treatment for submental fat.

How Does Kybella® Work?
Kybella® contains an enzyme that targets fat cells, breaks down the outer membrane, and releases the contents into the blood stream. This approach to submental fat reduction is unique because diet and exercise only shrinks fat cells. Kybella® destroys fat cells.
What Should I Expect During My Kybella® Treatments?
Kybella® requires a series of treatments, and each treatment involves making multiple injections in the submental fat from the point under the chin to the top of the neck. Kybella® does not tighten the skin or help with fat that is located on the mid to lower portion of the neck.
What Should I Expect After My Kybella® Treatments?
In clinical studies, patients experienced noticeable reduction in submental fat after approximately 16 weeks. The treatment areas may feel tender, tight, sore, and swollen after each treatment. Dr. Friedman and his trained personnel will advise you regarding the number of treatments that are needed, and treatments may need to be added or removed based on how Kybella® works to reduce your submental fat.
Is Kybella® Right for Me?
If you have fullness under your chin and along the jawline, as well as good skin elasticity, Kybella® may be right for you.
